Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can be irritated by people who seem to want to control you, or work and responsibilities are an on-and-off nag today, dear Aries, with Venus in a minor challenging aspect with Pluto. Feelings about a person or project can be up and down. You may feel that you have to make a tough choice, or you’re keen to enjoy yourself, but worries prevent you from wholeheartedly doing so. Pay attention to the fears and emotions that surface today, as you can learn much about what might be holding you back from going after what and who you want. However, remember to tune out the negative distractions and focus on what truly matters for making improvements. A certain self-consciousness may be with you along romantic, creative, or recreational lines now, but you can work with instead of against this energy. The Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, making it a good time for clearing out the deadwood. It can be a strong day for detoxing and relaxing.
TaurusDiscontent can be a little more pronounced today, dear Taurus. You could feel you’re in a tight spot, choosing between two equally enticing alternatives, but it may very well be that your fear of missing out is interfering with your mood. Venus in your solar fourth house these days inclines you to prefer safe, familiar pastimes, but another part of you is itching for a change or afraid of missing something important. You’re inclined to close up or withdraw, making it a better time to work on your own. If you can manage your emotions and exercise patience, it’s likely to be a minor disturbance only. Certainly, there can be some tension as you wonder what lies ahead. But even if you are not totally in sync with others, it’s temporary and can redirect you in interesting ways.
GeminiWhile you’re interested in settling in and taking things easy today, dear Gemini, you can struggle with distractions. Try not to push yourself to understand everything, as much as you may feel the need to know! Pushing is likely to stir up unnecessary problems with current Venus transits. Overthinking can complicate things, and suspicion may throw you off track. Decisions can be a little tough to make. However, adjustments to your plans and projects may be necessary and can help you out in the long run. Aim to identify and let go of resentments bogging you down or preventing you from making good memories. There can be tensions to manage, likely revolving around relationships or finances, but they can serve to balance out your thinking as you consider realistic and practical angles.
CancerYou might notice differences in core values with someone today, dear Cancer, and the matter can bog you down temporarily. There can be some tendency to sit on the fence about an issue because you’re uncertain whether your perceptions are objective enough to hold weight. Love or friendship is complicated, but emerging feelings can illuminate insecurities so you can learn how to manage them. To avoid the trap of doing something that leads to holding a grudge, aim to connect with your true feelings and draw up some boundaries. You might resolve to do only what feels right and is reasonable, which can benefit you and your relationships. Knowing when to wait is essential now. Still, the Moon spends the day in your sign, and you tend to command positive attention.
LeoToday’s energies are not ideal for reaching an agreement or a compromise, dear Leo, but it’s a fine day to learn more about yourself, especially your hidden ambitions. There is some tendency for outside obligations to pull a loved one’s attention away from you, which can be a little off-putting. Alternatively, a longing can temporarily distract you from the tasks at hand. You’re more approachable these days with Venus in your sign, but part of you requires periods devoted to reflecting on or processing recent activities. Today, there can be subtle problems related to resentment or fear that seem to come out of nowhere. They’re manageable but could lead to some off-timing. Again, they can be highly revealing.
VirgoYou may feel torn between applying yourself to a challenging project or issue and enjoying some fun today, dear Virgo. People seem preoccupied at best and tense and self-focused at worst. You might waver between trusting someone or something on the one hand and questioning motives on the other. Due to a Venus-Pluto transit, signals can get crossed in love matters with the chances of both parties feeling moody. You’re likely to do some looking back and processing recent events, and it’s healthy, but emotions can bubble to the surface at unusual and possibly inconvenient moments today. However, if you pay attention to the cues, you can learn much about what is truly behind your fears and insecurities, particularly about a relationship.
LibraYour worldly ambitions can figure more strongly today, dear Libra. However, with a Venus-Pluto minor challenge today, previously buried resentments or frustrations can emerge in subtle ways. People around you are dealing with their issues and are not especially available to guess or sense your needs. Try not to allow small timing problems or disconnects to interfere with the overall sense that things are getting better. There can be some pressure on you, and it can come through friends, groups, or family, or it can be about them. Letting something slide is not always a bad thing since it can take more courage to do so in certain situations. It can be challenging to take a step back and allow others space when you’re feeling insecure, but it’s important to let go from time to time.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your solar ninth house, and the broader issues of your life are in sharper focus, dear Scorpio. While seeing the bigger picture has the strong potential to soothe you, today’s Venus-Pluto aspect suggests some off-timing. Underlying tensions or resentment can emerge. You may inadvertently cause some problems — primarily for yourself! Try not to self-sabotage or to let negative thoughts ruin a good thing. If you want to push boundaries, there are better times to do so! Today is not one of them. You’re sensitive to imbalances, particularly in your relationships or with work and responsibilities. It’s temporary and may be eye-opening!
SagittariusIt’s not easy communicating your inner message today, dear Sagittarius, and you can discover that people misconstrue things, at least partially due to insecurities. Aim to take some social awkwardness or miscommunications in stride. Reconsider whether it’s imperative to be understood on a matter before pursuing it, or wait to present your ideas for a time when people are less self-centered. The desire to sniff out a truth, while strong, may not be worth it just for the time being. There is no need to dwell on a particular fear or uncertainty or obsess over what you don’t know about a situation because that’s where you’re inclined to trip up today. While there are excellent times to think big, today is better for slimming things down. Understanding and appreciating your needs for self-expression can be key to feeling stronger.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your solar seventh house of partnership, and you can be particularly interested in finding a balance or keeping the peace, dear Capricorn. Still, with a Venus-Pluto minor challenge today, doubts can enter the picture. Observing more than participating seems to be the most advantageous position these days as you learn more about yourself and your connections. However, aim to avoid overanalyzing or finding problems where there are none. You can feel just a tad out of step in spots today, as if you can’t quite read a person or situation. Decisions are hard to make right now, but once handled, a sense of relief can arrive. Focus on moving forward, and look for the best possible way to do so, but make plans rather than succumbing to impatience.
AquariusYou may need some distance or detachment from a problem to eventually understand it better, dear Aquarius. Waiting something out may help you see the light. Venus in your partnership sector forms a minor challenging relationship with Pluto today, which can point to a need to make some adjustments. With close partnerships and relationships, you’re in generally good shape for smoothing over relations with others these days, but it can be tricky to get to a better position temporarily. Even though you are inclined to second-guess people, it’s probably a good idea to keep this to yourself for now. It’s not about dishonesty or glossing things over–it’s about the right timing. Oversharing can get you in trouble now, and so can overthinking. You may need to step back from situations to get the whole story or resign yourself to not knowing everything. The focus should be on strategy and action plans rather than quick maneuvers again today.
PiscesThe Moon spends today in your sector of joy and creativity, and you can feel a stronger desire to express yourself in some manner, dear Pisces. Looking for positive feedback is fine, but with today’s tricky aspects, it’s best not to invest yourself too much in this quest. Insecurities about your performance or your usefulness may be in focus. You may need to accommodate or make adjustments for others. Avoid attempting to mastermind a situation if you know, in your gut, that it’s not right. Watch also for a tendency to stay stuck in limbo where nothing much gets accomplished. Look for and then focus on choices that empower you instead of dwelling on resentment or insecurities for the best results today. It’s better to work on the details than the big ideas under current influences.
